Breakthrough Your Life / 8 Step Congruency Process
We go through life implementing lists, equations, and processes to formulate results. However, what method have we been using to create congruency in our life? If your anything like myself, your method has been spotty at best. Combining education with strengths has been our standard for many years.
Fresh off returning from an amazing business retreat, I sunk my teeth into a concept that energized me. A session that broke down four categories that adhesed four lifestyle traits. After completing this process of self-exploration, I began to visualize it’s potential to impact myself and others. Molding these eight areas together, unites and allows us to work in harmony and deliver results. I will break down each area, and share insight on why I envision positive results occurring once implemented.
WHAT YOU LOVE
“Do what you love, love what you do”. Ever notice how you lose track of time when you’re in this state? We are relaxed, “in flow”, and very efficient when we truly love what we’re doing.
WHAT YOUR GOOD AT
Pay attention to what your good at. This doesn’t just mean your career or profession, pay attention to your hobbies and interests. You could very well be missing out on something special if you overlook areas that seem childish, odd, or silly.
WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS
Scratch your head for a bit and really think about something the world needs. This is an excellent way to get out of your own way, and see congruency take form. Don’t restrict yourself, think freely and just start writing what comes to your mind.
WHAT CAN YOU BE PAID FOR
Now that you have these four categories working in congruency, lets adhere them with four subcategories.
PASSION – When you combine what you love with what you’re good at, you’ve found your passion.
MISSION – By connecting what you love with what the world needs, you’ve uncovered your mission.
VOCATION – Combining compensation with what the world needs, establishes your vocation.
PROFESSION – Compensation aligned with what your good at, equals profession.
You now have the ingredients to produce transformational results in your life. This will not be enough though, you must do the below exercise and follow it up with a high dose of implementation.
Find a sheet of paper and list the four main categories at the top of the page. Then slam out ten thoughts that come to mind when you ask yourself those questions.
LOVE GOOD AT WORLD NEEDS PAID FOR
Once you’ve finished, look closely at the final category and pay attention to how you feel. If you’re not inspired, take a break and brainstorm another five ideas. Odds are, you’ll get clarity to your purpose.
I hope this concept serves you, and leads to a fulfilled life. Please share your comments below, and follow me to on any of the below links. I’ve also attached a link to the online education that taught me how to earn a living in today’s digital economy.
